The celebration of St. Patrick's Day was imported to America and other countries by nostalgic Irish immigrants in an attempt to inspire unity, assert a presence, and to celebrate their cultural integration. After Irish immigrants found their way to America, the colonies celebrated St. Patrick's Day for the first time in Boston in 1737. In New York City, the earliest celebration was reportedly held in 1756 at the Crown and Thistle Tavern. Parades were not initially included in the activities.The first St. Patrick's Day parade was in New York City on March 17, 1762, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through the streets accompanied by highland Bagpipes, ancient instruments capable of emitting a haunting wail (used by Celtic soldiers to intimidate enemies).
